Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

It is my warmest pleasure in drawing your attention to this confidential business proposal. I know we have not met or done anything before,I want to assure you that this business will definitely benefit both of us, so I pray that you give this proposal some consideration.
I am Richard Greyham, the managing director of Diamond Security And Storage Company Ghana,one of the best in Africa,where most African leaders and prominent men deposit their valuables such as money,diamond,gold etc. I have been with this company for the past 10 years now so I am conversant with everything that goes on in it. Presently, there are some consignments deposited by various people for the past 6 years with nobody coming for them or paying for their dumorage.
I carried out a private investigation and found out that most of them are dead and there are no traces of any member of their families. To me this is an opportunity to make money.And this is where you come in,You will present yourself as the beneficiary of one Mark Zumba,who owns 2 of such consignments. If you agree to do this business,all the relevant documents will be prepared in your name for the consignment to be transferred to your country. After which I shall come over to meet you so we can then share the valuables in these boxes. The worth of the contents inside each of these boxes is twelve million dollars. I shall give you 25% of the deal if you indicate interest. I am assuring you that you shall not be subjected to any form of risk, if you work with me on this. I hope to further strengthen my business relationship with you after the execution of this one.
I strongly believe that for the sake of God,you will exhibit a trust worthy character when you receive these funds. Please note that your ability to keep this transaction confidential, is very important for the sake of my job and reputation.
Hoping to hear from you soon. You can contact me on my private e.mail email@example.com
